Charlie White over at DVICE has been to XStreamHD to see the first demos of the XStreamHD entertainment system that’s currently under development and in beta stage.
The satellite-based XStreamHD device works on the principle of “pre-fetched entertainment.” basically allowing you to view movies without having to download or stream the content. The data for upto 40 movies is sent to your box during the night ready for you to view at your leisure.
When you fancy watching a movire simply unlock it and play immediately. There is a monthly charge of $10 plus a fee for each movie watched but XStreamHD says it will be keeping it prices in line with amazon and iTunes rentals.
